Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting
Perl is available with all of the shared web hosting that we offer and you can execute any kind of .pl file that you upload inside your account thanks to the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP program. The latter will enable you to create an Internet site with all of the options that you would like your visitors to have, but PHP can't offer. You'll be able to execute a script either manually or automatically with a cron job. Our plans include a large number of Perl modules that you're able to employ and you'll see the complete list in your web hosting account in addition to the path that you have to use in your scripts, so as to be able to access these modules. If you want to execute a Perl/CGI script with a cron job but your package does not offer this option, you'll be able to include as many cron jobs as you need through the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of the web hosting Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All the semi-dedicated servers that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or various other applications written in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are included in all our plans, you're able to select if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. In addition, you can take advantage of a large library of more than 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their functionality so as to save time when you write your scripts. Provided you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a particular module to operate properly, we'll have it because our library features both widely used modules and less popular ones. You're able to view the path to the modules which you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
